Ellis Capital acquires significant stake in National Mail

Ellis Capital executive, John Southworth, described the move as a term investment in a growth company which has wonderful opportunities.

“We expect National Mail to take significant market share from the incumbent postal operator which, until recent deregulation, had been a state owned monopoly,” Mr Southworth said.

He said the recent New Zealand sharemarket malaise offered an excellent opportunity to buy stock at bargain prices and won’t rule out purchasing more stock in National Mail.

It is an aggressive and acquisitive investor, which plans to continue to acquire stakes in undervalued high growth companies.
